Forum: GratefulDead Subject: For Splue

Splue, what the hell is going on? Before you came to this forum you where having months of rational conversations, mostly with NC, but also with me. Many times over technical sound engineering/making stuff, which I was not a part of. It was good. Something seems to have curdled here.
This is not like other forums on IA. The other forums don't have nearly the number of posters or the singularity of GD as a driver. What one can rip off or tear down or rearrange in another forum would probably not work here. It's numbers and time. Look at the numbers of hits per forum (scroll up)

http://www.archive.org/iathreads/forums.php#forum

As you can see, it's not even close. As any group gets bigger it's inevitable that shards, splitters and factions will follow. I learned that no matter how well intentioned, certain topics are best left where momma said to leave them. Yeah, you have to self censor here. But we all do to some extent.

Next is time. Yes, some forumites have been posting here a long time. Unless they are being a complete jerk (which is quite rare/never) they deserve some respect. Some have been here several years or are relative newbies like myself. There are many strong personalities and also relationships here. Frankly, having visited other GD sites this would be the no bullshit GD site (not that there is anything wrong with the others). If you want to explore this site maybe sit back, see who the personalities are, see what and who makes you laugh. If the latter refers exclusively to this troll thing then this is not the site for you. If fact, how about not responding to any trolls here? Even if they call you out.

This new splue is a little scary. You seem one loop away from a loop-d-loop. Breathe. Try to settle in and find some truly neat and cool people. It's a vast wonderful world instead of the written derision of the dark, dank cave wall you are looking at. Come on, we don't have your demographic represented at all if you flake out! :-)

And please, please, don't call yourself names. You are not a dog in heat.

edit- Go easy.

Micah, I am so impressed by you. Seriously. I have not encountered many Christians who actually live by Christian principles, but my hat is off to you (or at least it would be if I were wearing one).

Wow, the bean-counters certainly do rule the stats hereabouts. Clearly our beans beat the beans at the AP Calculus AB forum -- which, sadly, has no posts, in spite of this intriguing TJI:

"Calculus AB Lesson 02: Absolute Value and Piecewise Defined Functions

41 years ago"

After 41 years, you'd think at least a troll would have commented on it ...

I agree, splue is a psycho troll, a dumb donkey harassing other people aka. cyber stalking. A demonic person like splue should just shut up, go away and stop spreading stupidity, that would help the internet to become a better place. Splue is brainsick and should consult a psychiatrist or better an exorcist.

Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: For "Micah"

Dear "Micah", you have always appeared to be friendly, but
what exactly is it that scares u? That someone can deviate from your masculine-defined norms and levels of comfort on what is appropriate in this forum?
Apparently, you dont feel the need to call out other gd members in op-ed style, so what's the big f@ckin deal? and to be truthful, you just lurked on NC's and my conversations---when i tried to address u, u were too big to respond. NC even tried to fill in for u to by responding.
he'll probably have to distance himself now, but I understand. It doesnt change my opinions about his work, and i know he has to do whats best for him!!


I did notice that u tried to give me the bum's rush over here on a couple ocasions. But Tollundism likes to talk here, & I like to talk to Tollundism. Hashjihad liked to talk to him too---why didnt you respond in a similar melodramatic way to him?? (because he's a guy-----oops I said it) Tollundism has a lot of interesting things to say, in fact his views sometimes intersect yours, I dont agree w everything & he & i both like Grateful Dead music. How are we harming you? Maybe u want to go thru life like a timid little mouse, maybe I misjudged you. So until you police all the other sh1t that people say that is *inappropriate* by your definitions, u need not worry about me. Btw, how can your brain even process NC's music? What do YOU stand for, except for kowtowing, lurking and pocket psychologist profiling? Like Tollundism, I am not here for ur approval, I am here to meet dynamic, sometimes hard-to-define entities. Like urself. Like Tollundism. Like Greta Garbo. Like the Cleveland Orchestra.

Don't u looove the quotations around ur name? It's vry "snide" isnt it? I learned that in the gd forum!! Oh yes, and while I'm at it, blow me! And go f@ck yourself very much troll!!
I would hate to ruin the self-pious sanctity of this church.
Now I am going to bathe in the purifying rays of GD music!!
respectfully, splue

p.s. i still like u micah, but we'll have to agree to disagree on this one.

Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: For ?

Splue, that's quite a prism you see things through. To tell you the truth, I assume no gender with any poster until I get to know them. You could be a 300 lb guy chowing on wings and slamming back Natty Light while playing around in your undies in Mom's basement.

I hope you at least hear that my post to you was not done with any malicious intent. Maybe as a small, hopefully useful guide. And yes, I do love this place for what it is.
As far as the petty this or that in your post, it's just tiring.
Go easy splue.

Thanks for revealing yourself "Micah",

I have no intention of meeting any nutjob in person.

I've been studying your posts for quite awhile. I make no assumptions about you either. But I note that you use the exact same tactics as TitusPrime and several other trolls
that have swept through here. I also notice that of everyone here, only you protested the loudest. Your language is easily cross-referenced with other posters. You have been called on your trollery here many times. A passive aggressive sort like you would need to appear calm and superior, then sail in later and drop anonymous sh1tbombs. I've tracked them all over the archive. You are a hypocrite at best, and a false flag. We've got your number.

Are you describing yourself? peace2u (fire away--u do not exist to me)

splue - you are a breath of fresh air. The more I read your posts the more envious I am of your undoubted talent for blindsiding, discombobulating and wrongfooting the unwary who would make the mistake of underestimating your prowess. And a definite salute to your effortless evisceration of the sanctimonious among our number.

Dear Sir "RobtheWordsmith"

Thank u, but u have to understand that I still rly like the "Micah" (with full understanding that it's not mutual);
I share some of "his" faults, and (vry hopefully) a few of "his" positive attributes. I am undoubtedly batshit crazy.
We are suspicious of "him". But so are "you". Other people are suspicious of me and other entities. "He" probably views both of "us" in similar ways. Don't you see how the human race is f#cked? "He" might be a secretly peaceful Jihadist with a heart of gold, you might be Mother Jones with a cure for fatal eczema, I might be Howard the Duck (watch it, Disney property now--ed.), & even if Steve Gerber himself returned from the hereafter to write the graphic novel, we might still be power-lunched by Galactus (check copyright-tm status on reference)two posts before the cosmic nexus is fully explained!

(get to the point dumbass--ed.)

I do not like control-freakiness from anyone, even well-intentioned people. Or people calling themselves well-intentioned in a Pharisee manner. Or from myself. (shut it--ed.) I don't like arbitrary standards imposed by either self-appointed handlers, deceptive people or cosmic mujahedin manipulators. I do not like passive aggression. I prefer it straight on, so we may respond in kind.
But I would prefer a sense of genuine humour and leniency for the paisley gadflies, outsiders, and gaily discombobulated. I/we thought that was SF?
I *particularly* do not like being referred to as a guy, altho i know i act pretty butch sometimes. We like it. We didn't initially question the gender of people here--tho maybe I should from now on. We are learning a lot by reading you guys; I am learning how u guys think. I find you fascinating! You annoy us. I am learning a lot about the music forms. It is gain many understanding about the styles and the appreciations much!! I am glad they give me the freedom fries.

I've especially noticed a creepy tendency here at the Archive for "challenges" being thrown down for getting people to prove their sex & stats or meet (which for me always kind of throws up a warning flag, 48 HRS, Dateline--u know)---i could so easily post a cam vid of myself, but i do not feel safe about that, because we know guys!! The "Micah" should understand: "his" own "friend" made a video response when an entity made allegations about him in a similar fashion, allegations again offered with concern, advice, and "friendliness". I have a good nose for friendliness. And a great ass for what ain't.

I've watched (marveled at) both you and the "Micah" joust; i believe that you "guys" are more similar in some ways than you think, altho u have this testosterone chess game thing going on. The biggest problem with the internet is that we all adopt these poses that *frame* who we are--(some of it extremely accurate, some of it cloaked for safety purposes.) The "Micah" is right about the fact that "he" doesn't know me. The same is true for almost everyone here at the Archive. There is nothing technically stopping someone from doing what (redacted) does here all the time. I would find that (redacted). I think "he" might have limited experience with opinionated women, or "he" cannot comprehend that a young one could make it without "community approval." My trust level was permanently lowered after 9/11 for personal reasons and the horrendous attack on our country. That is not going to change.

peace to you

grateful dead & further forever

Who are you splue? You are the most intriguing 'new' poster, hands down. That was a three time read through on the post. You know quite a bit of history here. I am taken back. You are a bit off here and there, but aren't we all?

Splue, I do not harbor any ill feelings towards you. Why? I think you have a unique voice and hence the motivation for my little guide. I can see where that might have been helpful to some, but as I read your post you seem to be in the fearless adventurer category. I underestimated you.

I will defend our occasional lunches, however. At what point do we stop being afraid? Everywhere I look I see screens, screens screens... Where is the human contact?

hi micah :D
micah i am just a nut! who am i? Nobody!!! just a college grrl helping her grandpa run his antique stores in ks & mo---i
goof off too much, skip classes, listen to grateful dead, further, NIN and
NoiseCollector now, all those guys Deadman, Sumanguru G. Jones, Digi Hartatak &
Noise, who i think is *secret code* for Digi but i'm 2 starstruck 2 ask!! I read 60's 70'scomics from our stores cos frankly they are not selling. I love Ghost Rider, Man-Thing, Swamp Thing, Fear, Chamber of Chi lls, Where Monsters Dwell, Creatures on the Loose,Wonder Woman, Satana, Son of Satan, AntMan, DollMan, Human Torch, Capt America,Werewolf by Night, Millie the Model, Planet of the Apes, the Eternals, the Avengers, Kull, Dazzler, Tigra, the Defenders, Night Rider, Xmen,Devil Dinosaur, Fantastic4,Nova, Rom, She-Hulk, Hulk, well u get the idea. "nuff said!" I am now starting to read history & the Bible & Tollundism recco texts, which are difficult but cool. I believe in randomness and structure, I take prescribed medication, probably not enough!! I usually am a tard. I like rosicrucians. I love the internet archive, i am going to build one for ants. I like Cindy Sherman and
her role photos, I am reading that book too. I like acting tough, like Telephone Tuffguy, except tougher, cos he seems
too wasted in his prank calls, I am new here, i figured out u 2 guys needed some fun, & i was playing along with Tollundism because I really thot he was (censored) at one point. But now i think i;m wrong, but gdammit i think he is so $%##$$%#
hilarious and smart. I tried 2 b good & lure him 2 Nc's but thet guy is like Andy Kauffman!!! I was down to three "suspects" for the archvillian Tollundism identity (or maybe antihero at best---sry Tolly!)

here were my 3 unordered picks: (drum roll plz)

Noise, you, & Rob. (+ u need to understand that i'm not saying any of u guys ARE, i'm just saying that u are
3 of the smartest dudes here, IMO)

I was basing that on strictly that Tollundism is extremely
literate, intellectual, witty, and is using surreal political humor with pop culture references!! Now i realize that he can be millions of other people but I felt that only you three guys met those criteria& frequented the forum & everyone else is pretty sane. (zzzzzz. oh i dozed off)
Not that u guys are insane, but you all r GUY GUYS. You all 3 remind me of Hawkeye and Trapper John, my faves, you too Tollundism if u are a different guy!!! Anyway, I had to act that way because I had to know!!! You r a cool cucumber Mr Micah!!! Anyway,to wrap this up I have to quit goofing & rescue my semester!!! (someone has to, it's not my kitteh)

btw I am not rly tracking u across the archive, i am not taking magical snapshots of tollundism in his rusty blue pinto (thats a guess based on a dream)
i am not rly a donkey (tanks one-post "antonny", plz subscribe to i luv pawnage, they have some veedios especially 4 u---fistbump 2u tho), I am not Tollundism because he is simply Tolluntastic and i am just a humble splue, i am not "skies" because she sounds rly mean and Anti-American & i am a patriot, i am not "kochman" (someone said that because why?) I read his posts & i am *not* seeing the connection so i guess u have to stand on ur hed but thet geeves me hedache, I am not NoiseCollector (how in the %$%$ could I be? Is our stuff any more different?)but i guess tprime thot we were. whew! I feel i just gave birth
to a manatee.

peace2u ( i stole that from a beatlish genius) , u guys r my heroes (sry 2 burden u with thet)
